Lee Seung Gi is Charming in BTS Video for “Return”

Lee Seung Gi has been winning over the hearts of Korean with his new mini album “Forest” with its hit song “Return.” The song has recently done an “all kill” on the online music stores. Through the official LOEN Entertainment Youtube channel the popular singer showed more of his charming self in the behind the scenes video.

The video is the making of the music video for “Return.” In the video Lee Seung Gi is bundled up in a warm winter jacket as they film outside in the cold. Most of the shoot is located in a beautiful forest. The singer explains that the location of the MV was chosen because the title of album is “Forest” and the environment matches the mood of the song.

Throughout the video the singer is charming as he jokes around with the staff members or hops up and down to stay warm. Even though environment is cold and windy, his personality seems to warm up the set. When they ask the young actress Kim Yoo Jung on her opinion of Lee Seung Gi she says, “This is my first time meeting him. He seems like a good person.”

As the video ends Lee Seung Gi says, “For this album, all the songs were songs I wanted to sing. Please show the album a lot of love.”

Does Omona not have any love for Seung Gi?! This is actually old news except for the "Invite" MV.

o wow i thought these had been posted! i liked the Return mv way more than expected. it was really dramatic (par for the course as far as lee seung gi MVs go lol)

I had to double check the tag, cause I didn't remember seeing them!

I liked the "Return" MV too. My favorite kind of MVs are the "story" ones like that. The MV for "Invite" was pretty and Seung Gi is nice to look at, but that's about all haha.
markthatcoin 19th-Dec-2012 05:58 am (UTC)
yeah it's rare in kpop to have a story... i agree that Invite is pretty much eye candy, but what a lonely song for him to be looking so qt and happy! especially that last shot!

I just watched the MV with subs and you're right, the song and MV don't really match haha.

As long as we're talking about Seung Gi eye candy, I think he's 100% adorable. I love his boy-next-door/neighborhood oppa look. His body is A++ too, perfect proportions or something XD.
markthatcoin 19th-Dec-2012 06:21 am (UTC)
yes! i had a bizarre lightbulb moment earlier this year and BOOM i love looking at him now. so crazy. he is beyond adorable. i love him on variety. he seems like a genuinely nice guy. his kimchi fridge cf with psy is one of my faves of the year (behind only bigbang for gmarket, probably). i can see why he is korea's #1 best bet for any cf.
purekpopology 19th-Dec-2012 06:36 am (UTC)
Do you watch 1N2D? I started watching it because of him <3!

I definitely get the CF thing too! He looks good in any clothes, and he's super cute selling anything else. I love the kimchi fridge CFs too. Him and Psy are such a weird pair, but they work really well together.

i've seen a few eps of 1N2D, but only here and there (i'm like that with all variety tbh, except Romantic & Idol for which i SCOUR THE INTERNETS FOR SUBS). he is really adorable on it :) i've mostly seen random older eps with Eun Ji Won, i watched a bunch while Reply 1997 aired.

i think i started liking him after the YG Family Strong Heart special aired. so random! it was his last episode of SH too lmao
purekpopology 19th-Dec-2012 06:55 am (UTC)
Haha I'm ridiculously hooked on Romantic & Idol too. I'm dying for the next episodes!!

I love Eun Jiwon too <3. Well, I love the whole 1N2D's group, but especially those two haha.

I've seen him on a few episodes of Strong Heart. I remember being amazed that he caught on to being a MC so fast. Singing, acting, MCing... is there anything he CAN'T do?
markthatcoin 19th-Dec-2012 06:59 am (UTC)
well... he can't cook... lmao

ahh the episode i watched today was so good! i didn't see it on omona yet but if lj weren't being so crappy i'd post it myself! i have to reply to all your comments via email!
purekpopology 19th-Dec-2012 07:12 am (UTC)
Haha yeah! it's hilarious watching him try.

Oh man livejournal is still messing up for some people? That sucks!

I saw a recap article somewhere today for a new ep, but i didn't read it cause i don't want anything ruined before i watch it!!
markthatcoin 19th-Dec-2012 07:14 am (UTC)
i just submitted a post for the new ep! it's so good! (it's on kshownow.net!)
purekpopology 19th-Dec-2012 07:19 am (UTC)
Aaah i would totally watch it now but i have to sleep. stupid work tomorrow. definitely watching it first thing after work though!
markthatcoin 19th-Dec-2012 07:20 am (UTC)
lmao if we are both in ohio (acc to your profile?) then we are both up WAY too late

worth the wait, that means you will be a day closer to the next episode airing!
purekpopology 19th-Dec-2012 07:22 am (UTC)
Haha i actually live in michigan now, but same difference!
b1gay4 19th-Dec-2012 07:12 am (UTC)
his last comeback with ra.d was alot better tbh.
idk maybe its bc i never considered him a great singer to begin with?? i mean hes great but his voice didnt attract me that much? and im really biased towards ra.d ????

Even though i like this mini, i agree the r.ad album was better!
after_12_am 19th-Dec-2012 07:25 am (UTC)
This mini-album is perfect. I've had it on repeat since it came out.
uledy 19th-Dec-2012 03:09 pm (UTC)
I have love, OP! I think he's a cutie, but his music is just mediocre to me. I'll watch the heck out of his dramas, though.
